Eco Galleria Has Glamorous Aesthetic For Your Next Instagram Photo Op
Eco Galleria, located in the Eco Garden area of Johor Bahru, is a mall that’s less than 10 minutes by car from Tuas Second Link.
The mall has a European-inspired aesthetic, complete with large outdoor spaces, regal architecture and enough bubble tea in a single spot to fall in love with.
Here are 7 reasons why you should make the short, short trip to Eco Galleria in 2020.
1. There’s a Le Petit Prince Cafe and library
Photo op hunters can find their next spot for a shoot with the Le Petit Prince Café.
With an interior resembling a library and books available as props or actual reading, watch your Instagram following shoot up.
Le Petit Prince Cafe
Address: 46, Jln Eko Botani 3/3, Taman Eko Botani, 79100 Nusajaya, Johor, Malaysia
Operating Hours: Mon to Sun, 10am to 10pm
Contact Number: +60 11-1128 9032
Website: The Little Prince Cafe
2. Famous Taiwan boba brands like The Alley and The Black Whale
Eco Galleria might not have the 20 bubble tea stores in other parts of Malaysia, but less is more as brands like The Alley, and The Black Whale have bases at the nearby Eco Botanic.
With 6 brands and counting located there alone, never miss boba day when you’re in JB ever again.
3. Atas European aesthetic
Paris and London are now finally within reach – at Malaysian prices.
You can now be close to home and still enjoy the aesthetic that makes Europe Europe. Fool your friends – within reason – into thinking you’re in London with the interior, modeled off British high streets.
The covered plaza reminiscent of Galeries Lafayette will also make you forget you’re in Asia.
Worry not about the data required to Instagram said shots: you can do so immediately with redONE’s SIM-only plans, where you do not have to top up or change your SIM card when roaming in Malaysia!
4. Super near the Causeway
With easy access to Exits 307 and 312 on the Second Link Expressway, Eco Galleria is literally just a short drive – keeping in mind the traffic congestion around the Causeway area – from Tuas, meaning you can be there and home with relative ease.
5. International luxury brands
Gucci, Prada and Louis Vutton in the heart of Johor Bahru may well become a reality when Eco Galleria opens.
We’re beating the currency conversion horse a little too dead, but there’s no doubt you’ll get value at Eco Galleria as compared to Orchard or MBS.
Don’t forget to pay your GST taxes on luxury goods when you return through the Second Link though.
6. Alfresco dining areas
Food and drink are in abundance at Eco Galleria. You’re getting the best of both worlds at Eco Galleria: Asian cuisine fused with Western architecture, for the atas-on-a-budget experience.
Or perhaps you’d like to sip coffee and catch up with your work while enjoying the atmosphere in the outdoor dining area instead, like the Europeans do in coffee houses.
7. Play mini-golf in the dark at Putt N Glow
Putt N Glow is the first and only place in Malaysia where you can play miniature golf flanked by glow-in-the-dark lighting.
This pirate-themed glow-in-the-dark golf course is perfect for taking an hour or 2 off your sightseeing and have some light fun with your friends or family.
